Chicago Cut or David Burke's Primehouse?... Thanksgiving day...

Hello chowhounds.... if you remember me from a previous post, we had reservations for Mercat for thanksgiving, but my mom wants a very good steak... and we come from Argentina which is a total Meat Eating Country... so we are picky with our beef... which is why we don't order it often, as we are so picky...

So, my question is: which steakhouse is the best in your opinion... ambiance & service is also important... i rather good steak in a nice ambiance with superb service then amazing steak with mediocre service & ambiance... (hope this makes sense)

they both have thanksgiving menu's (which one of us my order, but we'll also order steak off the regular menu) which both steakhouses have available for thanksgiving day.

From the reviews here, I think Chicago Cut... but want to make sure before I reserve...

  1. I haven't been to Chicago Cut, but I've heard good things. I really like Burke's. I don't think you can go wrong, either way.

    For opinions from those who have been to both, you may want to take a look at...

    Choose one - David Burke Primehouse or Chicago Cut -
    Which steakhouse should we go to instead of Gibson's? -

      Thanks nsxtasy!
      I've read the reviews, I'm still unsure which one? Are both steakhouses the same as far as quality and service??

        I haven't been to Chicago Cut yet, so I can't answer based on personal experience. But I've heard only good things about it, and I've been very happy with my visits to David Burke's (although I still miss the Sunday brunch they used to have). So my impression is that both are very good indeed, and you probably can't go wrong choosing either one.
